Photos of Farmhouse Designs in Raleigh, NC:
Which of these two farmhouses fits your personality best? These Raleigh homes are built from the same Max Fulbright floor plan, called the Low Country Farmhouse.
Compare the selections side-by-side (paint colors, light fixtures, granite counter tops, cabinets, kitchen layouts, and everything else inside and out!) to find which farmhouse design you would build!
These farmhouse homes are great examples of how a design/build homebuilder works to integrate every element you're looking for in a new home for your family.

Battle of the "Same" Farmhouse Plan:
Starting with the exterior, see which farmhouse you love most - and then tell us why!
We'll tell you exactly what paint colors, granite countertops, light fixtures, and cabinet styles are used in each - so you can see how Stanton Homes builds "real homes for real people" with their budget and wish list in harmony.
Farmhouse Exterior Style #1: Gray/Black Exterior and Wrap-Around Front Porch with White Columns

Exterior Features on Farmhouse #1:

Farmhouse Kitchen Layout #1
In the first farmhouse, the kitchen preserves the original layout in the floor plan (included below).
- Columns divide the kitchen and great room
- A raised eating bar is included in the island
Farmhouse Kitchen Layout #2
The second farmhouse kitchen eliminates the columns and raised eating bar. The island is also larger.
- An expanded island goes from the original 5-6' length to a 7-6' length
